that dual gpu x1950 is gna be awesome too bad it isnt dx 10
That X1650 must weight a ton! The dual X1950 looks nice, it will be interesting to see how much of a performance gain it will have over standard DX9 cards. It could well turn out to be the fastest non-DX10 that we'll see.
the x1650 would look cool on a media center
the dual gpu card looks nice but it's surely a power hog
Well, if the X1950 Pro can be used for Physics later on, it gives it more life.
all i gotta say is Nice Job Sapphire very impressive lol! that dual core looks especially great.
I wonder if the Dual X1950 Pro will perform better than the Asus counter-part with Dual PCB.
That picture of the dual x1950pro still has the internal crossfire cable...does that mean I could buy that and use it with my existing x1950pro? 3 Gpu's?
i think that is the way they want it to go....but they still have driver work to do in order to make that possible. plus they need mobos that can do it as well...
the new cooler for the dual core looks a lot like the 8800 coolers...i like it ....and with Dx10 still a ways off of mainstream, the dual core single card idea looks tempting....too bad its sapphire tho....
Im sure the driver will be the hardest part for ATI. They get that, then they can simply do a bios flash update for current crossfire boards (maybe not the RD200 but the 1600 and 3200 perhaps). Im interested in seeing this thing with some benchies. Too bad its more than a X1950XTX. I wonder if it will out perform it? I like the one with the zalman cooler, but Im sure you could get that and replace the stock fan on the original dual sapphire gpu.
ZOMG!!! Huge heatsink more maximum pwnage!
That card is as big as an 8800!!! Its good that one core is for Physics and one core is for Graphics as it adds some capability in DX10 games.. although we will have to run them in DX9 mode
Sapphire makes such ugly cards, unfortunately.
